Introducing East Gippsland & the Wilderness Coast
Beyond Lakes Entrance stretches a wilderness area of spectacular coastal national parks and old-growth forest. Much of this region has never been cleared for agriculture and contains some of the most remote and pristine national parks in the state, making logging in these ancient forests a hot issue.
Orbost is the main town and gateway to the Snowy River and Errinundra National Parks, but it’s beyond here that things start to get interesting. The magnificent coastal areas of Cape Conran, Croajingolong and Mallacoota are all uncrowded, unspoilt and undeveloped, and even on the highway the winding forest drive to the state’s most easterly point is magnificent.
